New EBR

Hey all,
I was just handed this new tool the other day. I have experience shooting the M14 in the presidents 100 etc but the EBR platform is new to me.

I was wondering if anyone could give me a few tips on some non permanent upgrades that I could do (trigger etc) to increase the effectiveness of this rifle. Ill have to give it back the way i got it in about a year.

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome aboard.
Never used one of those, but it sure looks like it could get the job done.

We had them down range... much better than the earlier M21s we had in OIF I , mainly due to ergonomics. Not much you really have to do to the EBR, but I’ve been eyeing this trigger kit:

I had a NM trigger job done on both of my M14s in an EBR chassis and can notice the difference in a positive manner. You may also want to think about a potential scope change to see if that could be a point of improvement.

Some common easy upgrades are, Getting a trigger shoe to help with pistol grip ergonomics and shimming the gas system is a good idea too (if needed)

Thanks from gorthman2

Quick question, I presume you are active and this was issued to your unit as a loan. I noticed that it has a different bipod than the 6200 original EBRs we built at Rock Island. Was this one of the rebuilds that came out of Anniston?

Granted, I'm tooting my own horn, but trigger is a big upgrade.

1. Curvature of the traditional trigger bow is sub-optimal for the EBR, because the angle of your hand with the pistol grip is more vertical. There are two solutions: my trigger has a re-shaped trigger bow, or you can add a trigger shoe. Both work, people prefer them for personal reasons, so I won't argue the point.
2. Adjustability of the trigger or a well done trigger job. Both will improve the pull.

I can attest to that, they should ship the EBR with the Shootingsight trigger the trigger angle is all wrong without the upgrade. Single best upgrade I've ever done to my EBR.

The trigger shoe/reshaped trigger really improves ergonomics on any M14 with a pistol grip. It changes the direction of the trigger pull into a much more natural feel.

Agree 100%. Best darn addition to my pistol gripped M14s. Trigger group on the right has Art's EBR trigger plus his lightened hammer. Whatta combination.

This is actually a prototype bipod made by AOA Tactical. Being issued in extremely limited numbers.

Nice EBR's. The trigger shoe does make a big difference. Here is my SOCOM EBR.
